Summarization is the art of abstracting key content from one or more information sources [6]. Summarization includes text summarization, image summarization, and video summarization. Text summarization is one of application of natural language processing and is becoming more popular for information condensation [1].Information is accessible in great quantity for every topic on internet assembly the key information in the form of summary would benefit a number of users. Automatic text summarization system generates a summary, i.e. it contains short length text which comprises all the key information of the document. Summary can be generated through extractive as well as abstractive methods.
